CONTRACTS WITH GUARANTEED RESULTS
The process of increasing the energy efficiency for the buildings and the equipment poses some risks for the project contractors, the consumers and the equipment suppliers. These risks arise from the wide variety of technical solutions, the complexity of optimizing the energy production and supply management and from the fuel and energy price fluctuations on the market. An essential factor is also the limited availability of fund resources and the complexity in administering the access to loans and funds. For that reason the Contracts with guaranteed results become more and more frequently applied when it comes to energy efficiency.
The investments under this type of contracts are made by a third specialized company (ESCO), which ensures payback of the investment without any increase in the costs paid by the consumer by using the money obtained from achieved savings in energy and fuels. The company arranges not only the full investment process, but also it organizes the management of energy production and energy consumption on the sites throughout the contract duration.
It is only natural that ESCO will be oriented towards optimal, complete and highly efficient solutions since its only source of incomes is through their successful implementation.
CES AD implements Contracts with guaranteed results in the following areas:

Management and reducing of the energy consumption in municipal and state-owned buildings;
Cogeneration;
Projects for switching to alternative fuels for energy generation and supply;
Projects for rehabilitation of buildings;
Use of recoverable energy sources.

THE CONTRACTS WITH GUARANTEED RESULTS PRACTICALLY OPTIMIZE THE KINDS AND AMOUNTS OF THE INVESTMENTS AND THE MANAGEMENT COSTS OVER THE PROJECT DURATION PERIODS. THEY ENSURE SUCCESS AND PROFITABILITY TO THE CONSUMER IN A HIGHLY COMPETITIVE ENVIRONMENT!
